There are over 35 Hebrew and Greek words that are translated by the word "mighty" in the Old and New Testaments. In many places God is described as "mighty" or the "mighty God." This concept is especially predominant in the Old Testament. (It also occurs about five times in the New Testament, depending on translation.)

The emphasis of this study is limited to the predominant Hebrew word translated "mighty" ("gibbowr," which occurs 138 times), and only to verses in which the word is associated with the word "God" or "LORD." (The word "LORD," in all capital letters, refers to the Hebrew name of God - "YAHWEH," sometimes translated as "Jehovah.") This reduces the list to seven occurrences.

A few comments should be made before we examine these verses:
